Mind you, the Phish show really is not there just because it's a good concert. It's there for the same reason you see Citizen Kane listed in so many top movie lists... it changed the genre and set so many standards that are still being used today. The Phish Halloween show did something no other band ever tried to do: Wear a musical costume.

"it changed the genre and set so many standards that are still being used today."

What genre are we talking about?

Who's standards?

Standards for what?

Used by who?

To compare what?

You make good points as well, I agree. Its all subjective.

"If that's the case then wearing a standard halloween is just fully grown person dressing like a moron in public."~~

I thought that's what Halloween was all about.

I tried to dress like the Headless Horseman for a week in March at work. Did not float.

Halloween and music is a free-for-all. Let what happens happen.
Here is a different animal trying to pretend:

"Wear a musical costume."

Isn't that just a fancy way of saying that they played a bunch of cover songs?

Sure, if you want to assume that anything you don't like is an inferior product.

If that's the case then wearing a standard halloween is just fully grown person dressing like a moron in public.

But in fact they tried to emulate even the conversation between songs. In short, they tried to reproduce the whole album live. Something few bands could pull off. It takes way too much practice that most bands wouldn't bother with.
